UNWTO 3World Responsible Tourism, in association with the UN’s World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), is a universal movement, helping to build a solid, sustainable future for responsible, philanthropic and eco travel and tourism. Since its introduction seven years ago, World Responsible Tourism has captured the hearts and minds of responsible and philanthropic travel facilitators everywhere.

Gandhi Legacy Tour (GLT) has received permission to proudly display the World Responsible Tourism emblem to emphasize commitment to “responsible travel” for a third consecutive year 2015. Responsible and philanthropic travel honors sustainable projects across the planet, underscoring a critical part that responsible and philanthropic travel must play in serving those whom we visit during our Gandhian travels.

Sponsored in partnership with the UNWTO – the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally beneficial to the indigenous peoples to whom we serve and are indebted in our responsible and philanthropic travel missions.

WTM Responsible Tourism  In 2002, 280 representatives from all sectors of tourism from 20 countries attended the Cape Town Conference on Responsible Tourism in Destinations, preceding the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg. A declaration on responsible tourism was agreed.  WTM Responsible Tourism holds the World Responsible Tourism Day. Since its introduction, WTM World Responsible Tourism Day, in association with the UNWTO, has captured the hearts and minds of industry professionals everywhere.

 Wednesday 4 November is WTM World Responsible Tourism Day 2015, marked not only at World Travel Market, but around the world with special events, communications and consumer promotions, demonstrating the industry’s determination to make a real difference.

Gandhi Legacy Tours looks forward to fulfilling its responsibilities and we are honored by its acceptance.
